Completed four-year secondary education and successfully passed entrance exam.
Study programme goals
The primary goal of this study program is to enable students to obtain a diploma in biochemistry which will be recognized by all European institutions and which will enable them to find suitable employment or to continue their education (if they have high enough grades) within a master study program in biochemistry or related disciplines at Serbian or European universities.
Upon completing the study program Biochemistry, the candidate is awarded the title "BSc in Biochemistry".
Access to further studies
Diploma holders are entitled to apply for master academic studies (which have the workload of 60 ECTS).
Students who have successfully completed the study program "Biochemistry":
- Have gained the fundamental knowledge of chemistry (general, inorganic, organic, analytical and applied chemistry).
- Have gained the fundamental knowledge of biology (cell biology, molecular biology, microbiology, physiology).
- Have a broad knowledge of fundamental biochemistry, including the structure and function of macromolecules (proteins and enzymes, nucleic acids, lipids, carbohydrates), metabolic pathways and signal transduction pathways and the basic knowledge of some specialized disciplines of biochemistry (immunochemistry, pathobiochemistry, biotechnology).
- Are able to apply standard biochemical techniques and methods and use basic laboratory instruments.
- Have a fundamental knowledge of bioinformatics and can use a computer in order to process experimental data, search databases, etc.
- Are able to work safely with biological material and various chemicals by taking the appropriate protection measures.
- Are qualified to participate in fundamental research and development projects and assignments in the field of biochemistry and related disciplines, both independently and as members of a team which consists of experts of various profiles.
- Have professional and ethical responsibility.
- Can further improve their knowledge and keep up with the development of technology and their profession throughout their professional lives (lifelong learning).
